The Super Bowl is almost here. Maybe that means you’ll be hosting a few friends and their appetites. Or maybe you got lucky and just need to bring a dish. Something other than your shining personality, though bring that too. Someone has to be the life of the party after all. 

The fact is you should must bring something crowd-approved and usually that means bold spicy flavor, like this Beef Enchilada Dip.

Classic wings are probably already covered, so if you’re serious about bringing your A-Game, I highly recommend Beef Enchilada Dip  . . . or a batch of Jalapeno Poppers. Or both.

Do you have a signature dish you’re always asked to bring to parties?

My sister-in-law has had a few over the years: a Harvey Wallbanger Cake (definitely dating myself), a creamy chocolate layered dessert called Chocolate Olsen, then came her Dill Dip with fresh cut vegetables and her ridiculously delicious Cheesy Potatoes that she gave me the recipe for but mine never turns out as tasty as hers – it’s probably the love she adds to every dish.

I don’t really have a signature dish, but anytime my youngest daughter comes over she: (a) is hungry and (b) asks “do you have stuff to make The Dip?”. I know exactly which dip she’s craving.

It’s this Layered Taco Dip that made so many times I’ve lost count; the dip we devour it like wild dogs.

Chicken Salsa Verde Dip Recipe

I’m not sure where my love of Mexican dips started but it’s definitely in full force and I can’t imagine it ever going away. When our kids were small many Saturday nights were spent with our neighbors and their kids ~ 4 girls total. For the adults Margaritas and a layered Mexican dip ~ refried beans, full fat sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce and salsa. So much yummy goodness. The girls’ favorite meal was French fries and dino-nuggets. Even today get-togethers aren’t the same without some kind of dip. The one I’m sharing today is a Chicken Salsa Verde Dip Recipe which is the last recipe in the Same Ingredients/Different Results series. The series is over, but stick around ~ next week and throughout the summer we’ll be fishing and grilling and, well ~ you’ll just have to come back!
